Wadebridge in Steam
Video and Audio Files
Clicking on the first of the links below will start a short video clip of Wadebridge passing through Brookwood station, reproduced by kind permission of Transport Video Publishing from their video "By Southern to the Coast", and in steam on 5th October 2006.
The files (with soundtrack as well as video) require a MPEG or WMV Player such as Quick Time, Real Player, VLC Media Player or Windows Media Player. If you have a pay-as-you go dial-up account you are recommended to click on the first link where there are two, though the second link is, of course, the better being larger, but does take a while longer to download.
If the clip starts playing before the download is complete, click on "Pause" until the whole file has arrived.
In addition to being grateful to Transport Video Pubishing for their kind permission to use the clip, we are grateful to Andy Pepper who bought the video and to Drew Warner and David Mills for their assistance with transferring the clip from the video tape to DTV.
We now have some footage of WADEBRIDGE on her first trip down to Bodmin Road on 5th October 2006 and of her renaming ceremony on 29th October. These clips were filmed by Colin Coomber using his digital camera, not a camcorder, and are again produced in two formats and sizes.
